Our school in Paris

Our Paris school uses two school buildings, both of which are centrally located. The first building is situated right in the heart of the Latin Quarter, just 200 meters away from the famous Notre Dame Cathedral and River Seine and the second building is just minutes away from the Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Elysées.

Between the two buildings, there are 19 well-equipped classrooms available for French lessons. Both buildings also have a student lounge with vending machines and free Wi-Fi access is available throughout the school buildings.

My course was excellent. I really feel I vastly improved my French language skills. It was also fun to have so many people from all over the world studying French together!

Madame Roquefeuil and her family were wonderful. They welcomed me into their home and family wholeheartedly. I was only there for two weeks, but I really enjoyed getting to know them. They also helped me find my way around and taught me about the public transportation system so I could use it "like a native".

I would definitely use your services again for further language training and cultural immersion. Thank you!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found all that was completed within the class-time to be effective and beneficial for my A level studies. Moreover, the school also arranged a wide-range of varying activities which I found to be good. The accomodation was good with good food and also good access to the local metro system.

Thoroughly enjoyable and beneficial experience all around - great course, great people, great mates!!

The course was perfect. I loved that the professor could not speak any English, so French really was the only language that could be used. I could not have dreamed of a better accommodation.. The apartment was beautiful & the host-mother so sweet. It was a perfect fit.

The first day was a bit difficult because I was still new at the language and did not understand some of the mix-ups that morning. But after that, I grew to love it and would recommend it to anyone. Not only does it help your linguistic knowledge but builds your confidence in using it. I enjoyed every lesson, and loved every teacher and every class mate. If I get the chance I would love to do it again.

The woman who I lived with was lovely and caring, and although there were initial language barriers we managed to communicate quite well in the end. The location was great, and the building itself perfect.

The course was fantastic. The teacher was very funny and patient in explaining. The course covered all skills of a language: listening, speaking and writing. My accomodation was excellent. I lived in a house which was very well decorated. The lady I was living with was very friendly and caring. She took me to some lovely places in Paris for a visit and we even had a picnic together on a sunny afternoon. I would definitely like to visit her when I go to Paris again.

I found the level exactly right, and was able to build on my previous knowledge. The teacher was enthusiastic and very good at communicating.

The accommodation was good, being near the centre of the city. The hostess took the trouble to talk to us in the evenings and went beyond the call of duty to entertain us - we were able to watch the Bastille Day fireworks from her balcony, with a glass of wine!

My teacher was really helpful, really good, and I learnt a lot. It was a welcoming atmosphere in which everyone was encouraged to participate.

I stayed in a beautiful old house, almost 200 years old, walking distance from the school. There is internet which you can use, and for breakfast there was baguette with Nutella!!

I really enjoyed meeting people in paris, and had a really good time, making the msot of it. I was just resentful that it was only one week, I didn't want to leave!

A Day in Paris…the Parisian way!

Hello everyone, Maria here! Today, I am going to write about how to spend a day in Paris the Parisian way, which means avoiding all sorts of mainstream tourist attractions where no real Parisian visits. In fact, many Parisians dread the Champs-Elysees, Eiffel Tower or Louvre. They even pray to never have to set foot in one of these places and some even find them tacky and cheesy. My guide will include everything from breakfast to dinner as well as all sorts of morning and afternoon activities to make the most of your time in Paris. Full addresses and example prices are listed at the end of this post. Read more...
